Detectives investigate homicide of Portland resident

October 04, 2004 00:00


On October 3, 2004, at 12:45 am, Portland Police responded to a “shots fired” call in the area of North Blandena Street and North Michigan Avenue. Officers arrived and discovered the body of 19-year-old Jacqueline S. Marcell behind the wheel of a vehicle parked at North Mississippi Avenue and North Skidmore Street. Marcell was transported to an area hospital where, several hours later, she died.

Homicide Detectives were called to the scene and initiated an investigation. An autopsy determined that Marcell died from a gunshot wound. Detectives are attempting to determine if Marcell’s death is connected to other “shots fired” calls received from the same general area. While detectives believe that the shooting may be related to gang activity, there is no information, at this time, indicating that the victim was involved in gang activity. Detectives are seeking witnesses who may have seen anyone in the area prior to the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Barry Renna at (503) 823-0255 or Detective Brian Grose at (503) 823-0757. This investigation is continuing.
